Motorola FLIPOUT for AT&T Review
So far, AT&T customers have been exposed to a healthy dealing of mid-range Android powered handsets. For those interested in a sub $100 priced smartphone, the Motorola FLIPOUT will instantly come to view with its intriguing form factor and entry level contract price of $79.99. Even with its inexpensive costs, it doesn't always necessarily translate to a deep and comforting experience.
Easily the most intriguing part of the Motorola FLIPOUT is its form factor, which is essentially a square shaped device with a swiveling front panel that exposes its QWERTY. Although it's constructed out of some cheap feeling plastic, there is a sense of charm that it exudes and blatantly stands out.
You can compare the Motorola FLIPOUT with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.
There's not much to say with the FLIPOUT's 2.8” QVGA (320 x 240) display with its support for 262k colors – it's visibly washed out looking and suffers from some poor viewing angles.
We're not particularly fond of its hard to press volume rocker and dedicated button. Thanks to the QWERTY, we didn't experience any issues accidentally pressing any of its capacitive buttons. In the rear, you'll find the 3.1-megapixel camera with self portrait mirror and a notch for its speaker phone. Finally, yanking off the rear cover will provide access to the SIM card slot, battery, and microSD card slot.
Just like the Motorola CHARM, we like the layout and feel of the FLIPOUT's physical keyboard. In addition, the prominent and decently sized buttons are more than acceptable in typing out a message.
